Fernando Torres

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard reckons Reds fans have forgiven Fernando Torres over his defection to Chelsea.

Torres was widely criticised and condemned by Liverpool fans after he left to join Chelsea for £50million in January 2011.

Gerrard spoke of the Atletico Madrid striker during last night's forlorn Champions League win over Real Madrid.

Left, Reza Parastesh. Right, Lionel Messi. Or is it the other way round? You decide

An Iranian student had to be taken to a police station at the weekend - because he looks too much like Lionel Messi.

So many people in the city of Hamaden wanted a picture with Reza Parastesh that police took him to the station and impounded his car to stop the chaos.

The fuss started a few months ago when the Messi lookalike's dad made him pose in a number 10 Barcelona shirt.

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba's world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United last year is the subject of a Fifa inquiry.

Football's world governing body has written to the Premier League club "to seek clarification on the deal".

It is believed to concern who was involved in the £89.3m transfer, and how much money was paid to them.

Italian football authorities may face disciplinary action over the treatment of Pescara midfielder Sulley Muntari.

Muntari, 32, was sent off after leaving the field claiming he was racially abused during a Serie A game.

He was initially banned for one game but had this overturned by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).

Buffon made the 1,000th appearance of his career in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Albania in March

Gianluigi Buffon said he always thought he would have another chance to win the Champions League, after Juventus reached next month's final in Cardiff.

Juve beat Monaco 2-1 in the semi-final second leg to triumph 4-1 on aggregate.

Goalkeeper Buffon, who has made more than 1,000 appearances in his career, was on the losing side as Juve were beaten in the 2003 and 2015 finals.

"Two years ago everyone thought it was my last final - but you have to believe in your dreams," said the 39-year-old.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has decried the “idiots” who directed monkey chants at Sulley Muntari and offered to speak to the Ghanaian soccer player who was initially banned for protesting against racism.

Muntari said he was treated like a “criminal” after being shown two yellow cards when he walked off the field during a Serie A game in response to the racial abuse.
